Kelvin was first to introduce Evie to the world, tweeting that he was "so proud" of both Maria and his newborn after a "complicated birth."

The BMX racer tweeted on Thursday 29 September: "Finally got my girls home after a complicated birth. So proud of the both of them and thankful things are ok now. Evie Paris Batey 25/9/16."

Kelvin kept any further details surrounding Evie's birth private, but did pay tribute to Maria in a second tweet, referring to his girlfriend as his "soulmate", he said: "To meet my soulmate & be lucky enough to start a family with her is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Nothing can compare. So happy."

Maria had re-tweeted Kelvin's post, but hadn't commented on Evie's arrival on her own social media accounts. She has now tweeted: "On top of the [world]," adding a love heart emoji.

On Instagram, Maria told her followers: "Life just got a whole new meaning. Evie Paris Batey 25.09.2016."

Maria had been overdue, after reaching her due date, and had fans concerned after posting a cryptic quote on Twitter. It read: "Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations." Kelvin, meanwhile, responded to Maria's post and said: "@MariaFowler just remember what I said to you... so proud and I always will be."

Since announcing the arrival of Evie, she and Kelvin have been inundated with congratulations. One fan commented: "So happy for you and @KelvinBatey555 enjoy being a mummy." Another said: "Congratulations! Love her name xxx."

Maria and Kelvin first announced they were expecting a baby together in March, earlier this year. Evie is the couple's first child, they have been dating since last year.
